Leaves from the Library: Communing with the Glass
by Jane Hockaday, Library Volunteer, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden
Last week I decided to take a short stroll to look at some of my favorite pieces in the Hans Godo Frabel‘s Glorious Glass in the Garden exhibit.
In the Library, the installations are situated on top of the book shelves. I took a close look at the Ghost Orchid and Embrea rodigasiana orchid pieces.
Just inside the door of the Conservatory is one of my favorites of the Masks.
My other favorite mask has a haunting quality.
I had to look closely… I almost missed the frog.
I had to ask myself… is it real? Or is it Frabel?
The Glorious Glass will be in the Garden through January 10, 2011. Don’t miss the chance to see these wonderful examples of artistry in glass. Visit often. Look closely. You won’t want to miss a single piece.
